To graph the function y = 6x^2 + 2x + 4, you can identify the important parts by analyzing its components:

- The coefficient of x^2 (6): Indicates the shape of the parabola. A positive coefficient means the parabola opens upwards, and a negative coefficient means it opens downwards.
- The coefficient of x (2): Determines the slope of the line tangent to the curve at any given point. It also affects the location of the vertex.
- The constant term (4): Represents the y-intercept, which is the point where the parabola intersects the y-axis.

By understanding these components, you can sketch the graph of the quadratic function.
